New Trial Database: Psychological Experiments Online

The library has a new trial database for you to try out called Psychological Experiments Online. Log into Esearch to access the database from this link (found on the Psychology Subject Guide under Databases). Psychological Experiments Online offers you the original documents of groundbreaking experiments — a valuable resource for your research papers and psychology classes.

From Alexander Street Press: Psychological Experiments Online is a multimedia online resource that synthesizes the most important psychological experiments of the 20th and 21st centuries. The collection pairs 75 hours of audio and video recordings of the original experiments (when existent) with 40,000 pages of primary-source documents. It’s packed with exclusive and hard-to-find materials including notes from experiment participants, journal articles, books, field notes, letters penned by the lead psychologist, videos of modern-day replications, and modifications to the original experiments.

Thanks to Dr. Sclafani and Everyone Who Helped with the UTWrites Presentation

On behalf of the Macdonald Kelce Library I want to thank Dr. Joseph Sclafani, who generously agreed to talk about his new book The Educated Parent 2 for our semi-regular Friends of the Library UTWrites presentation. Thank you, Dr. Sclafani!

Dr. Sclafani’s new book provides some fascinating insight to the challenges facing parents in the 21st century. I learned a lot from hearing him talk about his research.

I also want to thank the Friends of the Library for their help with the event. Thanks as well to John Meyer from the Campus Bookstore, library staff, and UT Catering for their prompt, cheerful, and excellent service.

If you’re a parent, a soon-to-be parent, know a parent, or know someone who is about to become a parent I can’t recommend this book highly enough. You can purchase a copy at the University of Tampa Bookstore, or at your favorite online bookseller.
